How do chariots work in close combat, as they dont have an attacks value. Although they inflict D6 impact hits on the charge, it does not have a weapons skill value either.
Chariots have crew and animals don't they? After the impact hits from the chariot itself have been worked out, the crew (including characters, if any) and the animals pulling the chariot make their attacks. Then any enemy survivors get to attack the chariot model.
"Peace, through superior firepower."
So combat done on the charge the chariot gets d6 impact hits (+1 if sytched) then the crew and creatures attack. Then for the rest of the combat until one side loses or is destroyed the chariot itself has no offence and you must rely on the crew and creatures to win the rest of the combat??
That is correct. Which is why chariots do much better either in pairs or supporting other units.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
Don't forget that chariot's impact kills count towards combat resolution. Like Ā§ilentĀ§torm says, chariots work very well when tandem charging. Let them roll in with a ranked unit and you'll kick butt. One of my regular opponent slammed his Stegadon and Temple Guard into my general's skeletal unit and beat the living daylights out of them. My general evaporated before the onslaught.
You'll want to take that black coach and ram it in the side or rear of your foe at the same time as your big unit hits the front. And remember, it causes Terror. Once it starts gaining wounds, you're opponent will freak.
Have fun and good luck!
